The Oldsmobile 4-4-2 (also known as the 442) is a muscle car
produced by Oldsmobile between the 1964 and 1987 model years.
Introduced as an option package for US-sold F-85 and Cutlass
models, it became a model in its own right from 1968 to 1971,
spawned the Hurst/Olds in 1968, then reverted to an option through
the mid-1970s. The name was revived in the 1980s on the
rear-wheel-drive Cutlass Supreme and early 1990s as an option
package for the new front-wheel-drive Cutlass Calais. The "4-4-2"
name (pronounced "Four-four-two") derives from the original car's
four-barrel carburetor, four-speed manual transmission, and dual
exhausts (Some maintain that the '2' indicated a limited-slip
differential). It was originally written "4-4-2" (with badging
showing hyphens between the numerals), and remained hyphenated
throughout Oldsmobile's use of the designation. Beginning in 1965,
the 4-4-2s standard transmission was a three-speed manual along
with an optional two-speed automatic and four-speed manual but were
still badged as "4-4-2"s. Because of this change, from 1965 on,
according to Oldsmobile brochures and advertisements, the 4-4-2
designation referred to the 400 cubic inch engine, four-barrel
carburetor, and dual exhausts. By 1968 badging was shortened to
simply "442", but Oldsmobile brochures and internal documents
continued to use the "4-4-2" model designation.
